Commission recognizes new Ironwood off-road group
IRONWOOD — The Western Upper Peninsula Trail Association was recognized by the city commission Monday as a nonprofit organization for the purpose of obtaining charitable gaming licenses.
Representatives of WUPTA, an off-road group, spoke to the commission about the purpose of the organization and its membership drive efforts.
“We want to work with businesses and landowners,” said WUPTA president Ross Kolesar.
The club has two safety instructors and is involved with similar organizations in Ontonagon and Iron County, Wis.
“We’ve done a lot in 11 months,” Kolesar said.
